Hey guys,
I have a Transcend USB Pendrive (4GB) which has suddenly turned "write-protected". I need some help over here.

did you use your pendrive on others computers such as office or friends to transfer files recently?if yes,it may be a virus..
try command prompt to format:
open cmd
(if the pendrive is g)
type: format g:
then enter.
this may help.

better than mac os x disk utility? will try it for sure. does windows installer partition care for write protected disks?

my frnd's transcend USB had similar problem of formatting he wrote an email to transcend they replied with download url of their utility :mrgreen:
his problem was solved
